AN £11million investment by Enniskillen packaging company Webtech NI Ltd is expected to create 35 jobs.
Webtech specialises in the production of labels for the European soft drinks industry and is the largest supplier of flexographic reel-fed labels to the United Kingdom and Ireland. It has a number of high profile customers including Coca-Cola, Schweppes, Nestle and all the major supermarkets. The company intends to increase its processing capacity and further build export sales through the investment.
Enterprise Minister Arlene Foster said: “Webtech NI is a local company that has built up an international reputation based on delivering the highest standard of quality and service from its state-of-the-art production facility. The company has provided high quality sustainable manufacturing jobs in Enniskillen for many years, growing in size as it penetrated the Great Britain and European markets.
“This significant investment will underpin Webtech’s goal of increasing sales by £10million over the next four years, focusing on export growth in Europe and North Africa. It reflects the company’s commitment to Fermanagh and its excellent standing in the international marketplace.
“The new jobs will pay salaries well above the Northern Ireland private sector median and the new equipment will ensure that Webtech has the capacity and technology to retain its position as market leader.”
Webtech currently employs 120 people at its premises in Killyhevlin Industrial Estate, Enniskillen.
